I've read a of the author's books and this is a good overview of much of his material. If you're interested in a historical understanding of how our understanding and interpretation of J.C. has come to be this is a great course. I like history and for myself, that is essentially what this course is. If you happen to be an ardent believer, belonging to any of the many forms of Christianity... Well, for one I applaud you for seeking a deeper fact based understanding of your faith. However, for someone who believes the Bible is the direct word of God, and does not want that belief challenged, this may cause some major cognitive dissonance.

This is a well written and well researched book. I disagree with the conclusion that Jesus is not God's son and thus part of the Holy Trinity though. I do enjoy hearing other people's ideas so that part was enjoyable. This teacher is a good storyteller as well. My only complaint about the book is that the author seems to use some circular logic - for example early on he goes to some trouble to show that we must accept the gospels as a reliable historical sources then later he goes to some trouble to show why the gospel writers are not reliable.

Really enjoyed this. Essential companion for anyone reading the New Testament who wants to know how it came to be.

Excellent content and narration. Very enlightening and informative. As with all of Prof. Ehrmans books and lectures, could not stop listening.
